Join Dr Andy Harter for the 2018 Turing Lecture. In his talk, Dr Harter will examine the role of “art” in technology - including not only form and beauty but also craft, design, skill, invention and intuition. Can we do more to appreciate and promote the importance of “art” as a feature on the interdisciplinary landscape?
